Johnson reassigned to minor league camp

The St. Louis Cardinals reassigned Butte native Rob Johnson to minor league camp today.

The move means the catcher will start the season playing for the Triple A Memphis Redbirds. Johnson appeared in 17 spring training games for the Cardinals. The former Mariner, Padre and Met hit .214.

Johnson, a 2001 Butte Central graduate, went 6 for 28 with two home runs, two doubles, five RBIs, four strikeouts and a walk. His first and last hits of the spring were home runs.

The Redbirds open the season next Thursday at home against Oklahoma City. Memphis is a member of the Pacific Coast League.
